Brett Lawrie Has Pizza With Girl Who Cried When Jays Traded Him (Photos)


YouTube videos of kids crying over sports really are nothing new, so when a Toronto Blue Jays fan posted one of his inconsolable 6-year-old daughter after Brett Lawrie was traded, most people probably watched it and moved on.

Not Brett Lawrie, though.

The third baseman, who was shipped to the Oakland Athletics for Josh Donaldson, saw the viral video and took notice. So on Friday, Lawrie surprised the little girl, whose name is Amelia, and they enjoyed some pizza together.

But his pizza date actually was Lawrie’s second stop of the day. His first stop was to the Boys and Girls Club of British Columbia to hand out gifts.

What a guy.
